Jhene Aiko Says That Drake Is Her "Musical Soulmate"
Jhene Aiko says that she's in talks with Drake to do an entire project with the rapper-singer.
Jhene Aiko says that she’s discussed having Drake on her forthcoming Souled Out album. “I’ve definitely talked to him about that,” she says during an interview with RapUpTV. "I think that he is probably like my musical soulmate. Wow. I said it. Musical, though. I just feel like our voices complement each other, our writing styles, all of that. So, I would love to do like a full project with him. I think that it would be really dope.”
Jhene Aiko also says that she’s had discussions with him regarding doing a full project with him and that she thinks he’s on board with it.
In the short-term, though, Jhene Aiko says she is preparing for the release of Souled Out. The collection, which does not have a firm release date, is slated to feature the song “Promises,” on which she talks about her daughter.
The singer says that the album, unlike like her 2013 EP, Sail Out, will probably not feature many guests.
“I did the album and it just shaped up to be all me,” she says. "With the EP, I left room for features just ‘cause I wanted it to be that type of project. But for the album, I just didn’t leave room for anybody ‘cause I have a lot to say. I just wrote the songs from top to bottom. But, if someone hears a song and feel like they can contribute and it makes sense, then I’ll definitely make room if they can do it before the summer.”
